Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in California

Unfortunately, motorcycle crashes are extremely common on California roadways, and while motorcyclists can take precautions to protect themselves from injury, they are vulnerable when sharing the roadway with larger vehicles. In California, the at-fault driver is responsible for reimbursing you for your losses after an accident.

Specifically, the at-fault party may be required to pay for: 

  • Medical Bills
  • Vehicle Repairs or Replacement
  • Lost Income
  • Pain and suffering

Motorcycle accidents are often be caused by: 

  • Other Drivers: Drivers put motorcyclists at risk by speeding, ignoring driving rules, failing to give motorcyclists the right of way, and failing to keep a proper lookout for motorcyclists.
  • Roadway Conditions: Motorcycles can be challenging to maneuver when roadway conditions are subpar. Unclean or poorly maintained roads can cause a motorcycle and/or its operator to lose control. 
  • Vehicle Breakdown: When a motorcycle’s parts are in poor condition, failed brakes, blown tires, or other mechanical defects can cause a motorcycle to crash. 

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle riders are vulnerable to a wide range of catastrophic injuries, including death. Some of the more common injuries we encounter in a motorcycle accident are: 

  • Broken/fractured Bones
  • Internal Organ Injuries
  • Lacerations/Abrasions
  • TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries)
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Scarring 

Surviving a motorcycle crash can leave motorcyclists with long-term physical and psychological injuries that require long-term medical treatment. We can utilize our resources to help you find the best possible care for your injuries.
